Moreover, the chocolatier comes from a family with tradition: As early as 1948, Cluizel began creating the first chocolates alongside his parents. And to this day, his passion for the delicacy has not changed. In the meantime, his four children are at his side, who have probably inherited the chocolate gene and are committed to the company with a lot of heart and soul. And you will definitely taste this passion: try the pralines, truffles and chocolates from Normandy, you will be thrilled!

The cocoa of Cluizel chocolates comes from plantations in Venezuela, Santo Domingo or even Madagascar. In fact, the house of Cluizel has very early obtained the cocoa directly from the countries of origin and cultivated relationships with cocoa farmers. This is the only way to achieve the top quality for which Cluizel is known. On the plantations, the cocoa beans are fermented by trained personnel - and very carefully, so that only unharmed beans enter the processing stage. This is important because this is where the flavors are already created. In France, the cocoa beans are then also processed as gently as possible and mainly by traditional handwork. And the noble end product you can then conveniently buy online here in the store!

"Since 1997, I have sought out excellent plantations to create these chocolates, each composed of exceptional cocoa beans sourced from a single plantation. Like the great wines - enjoy and compare. Direct, sincere and lasting relationships with plantation owners allow us to meet people with extreme passion and a great deal of experience. This guarantees the best possible traceability of the cocoa / cocoa beans."
"1er Crue de Plantation" or "Grandes Teneurs en Cacao" is what Cluizel calls its exclusive chocolate lines. The former are made only from single-variety cocoa beans from a single plantation. Early on, the House of Cluizel sourced cocoa directly from the countries of origin and cultivated relationships with the cocoa farmers. Only in this way can they deliver top quality. The cocoa beans are carefully fermented on the plantations by trained personnel. This step is particularly important in the manufacturing process, as it is here that the flavors are created. The process must be carefully monitored to ensure that only healthy and unharmed beans are processed and that under no circumstances can other beans be "infected".
At Chocolaterie in Damville in Normandy, the cocoa beans are then roasted and further processed into chocolate, pralines, truffles and confectionery. Everything is made mainly by hand in the traditional way and is often refined with vanilla so that the products are processed as gently as possible and reach the connoisseurs of the chocolates in optimum quality.
